John Catt to launch Academy magazine in autumn 2011 June 20, 2011

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Magazines, New releases.

We are delighted to announce that in the autumn we will be launching a new education magazine, Academy, to celebrate the exciting, fast-growing academy and free school sector.

For this venture, we have partnered with FASNA, the Foundation, Aided Schools and Academies National Association. FASNA’s strong links to the Department of Education and their status as one of the foremost associations in the sector will ensure that Academy will be recognised as the leading voice for academy schools in the UK.

Paul Strong, Headmaster of one of the highest performing academies in the UK, has been appointed as editor of the magazine and will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the publication. Aimed at and written by the senior management teams at UK academies, the magazine will be published three times a year and reflect all that is great about this exciting sector.

Editorial will focus on:

  • offering objective advice to schools thinking of converting to academy status
  • helping those in the process converting, with guidance written by those who have been through the procedure and experts in the field
  • news and opinion on political developments from Westminster
  • case studies reflecting the ups and downs of academy status
  • Heads, senior staff and teachers sharing examples of good working practice to help academies and free schools continue to strive for high standards

Anyone interested in contributing to the magazine can learn more by contacting Alex Sharratt, managing editor, on email here. Organisations interested in marketing themselves to this vibrant sector should get in touch with Madeleine Anderson on 01394 389855 or via email here.
